Over the past year, we have faced unprecedented challenges amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the exceptional work of SAU faculty, staff, and health care professionals, SAU is excited to return to a more normal campus environment for the Fall of 2021. SAU will welcome new and returning students home to a full slate of campus events and activities.


Southern Arkansas University offers personalized tour visits, faculty and staff who care about student success, and a caring campus community. SAU also offers traditional and unique academic degree programs that are ranked nationally for quality and affordability.

Nestled in a quiet and beautiful part of south Arkansas, SAU is a great place to call home and to study a broad range of academic programs, including some unique offerings to the state and region. Along with boasting a complete college experience on campus, the University is a short drive from outdoor activities and is central to many regional hubs, such as Texarkana, Shreveport, Little Rock, etc.

Established in 1909, SAU has built on its dedication to student achievement and continues to grow, both on campus and online, with more than 80 degrees in four distinct colleges and the School of Graduate Studies.

“The environment on campus at SAU is so welcoming, making it easy to get involved and meet people. I couldn’t have picked a better place to call home.”
